    Pretty sure that backups do not include photos any more than they include music or contacts. These are things that you set your phone up to sync with other applications on your desktop.

    Exactly. The only pics that are backed are those in the camera roll.

    You can restore those pictures to your phone from your backup. That's the only way I know of getting data out of an iPhone backup.

    the thing is i wanted to keep my new phone on a new backup just incase there was somehow a virus or something on my old backup. i got a new phone and im not having problems like i did with my old one but im not sure if it was something in the software.
